Install on development store

I was wondering how/if I can tell when my app is installed on a development store. My end goal is to have different settings for development stores than then ones I have for live stores. I want to do this using the admin API when the app is installed. I have not found anything on the API reference.

Is there a way to know if a store is a development store or not using the admin API?


Thanks in advance

Hey @NikosFotiadis,


You can query the shop property to get the plan name.


GET /admin/shop.json


The fields plan_name and plan_display_name fields can tell you if the store is a development store. This is the response from my store which is a development  store which is using the developer preview.
